Note 7. Income Taxes

 

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets include, among others, capitalized research and development costs, net operating loss carryforwards and research and development tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets are partially offset by deferred tax liabilities arising from intangibles, fixed assets and lease assets. Realization of net deferred tax assets is dependent upon future earnings, if any, the timing and amount of which are uncertain based on the Company’s history of losses. Accordingly, the Company’s net deferred tax assets have been fully offset by a valuation allowance. Utilization of net operating loss and credit carryforwards may be subject to substantial annual limitation due to ownership change provisions of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended and similar state provisions. The annual limitation may result in the expiration of net operating losses and credits before utilization.

 

As of both March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company’s liability for gross unrecognized tax benefits (excluding interest and penalties) totaled $151 thousand and $0, respectively. The Company had accrued interest and penalties relating to unrecognized tax benefits of $0 and $0 on a gross basis as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The change in the liability for gross unrecognized tax benefits reflects an increase in reserves established for foreign uncertain tax positions arising from the Merger. The Company does not currently expect significant changes in the amount of unrecognized tax benefits during the next twelve months
